“Imagine being in a canoe and steering it on a river. The canoe as your vehicle is reliant on your skills of steering, turning, advancing, holding, and balancing as the waves and currents lash themselves upon it. Your goal is to ride that river without upset, without damage, without losing to it. This is a lot like what is happening in First Nations education today. Our canoe is representative of the values we uphold and the traditional teachings that they carry. The river is the trends we experience in education, always moving, always churning. We as educators hold the responsibility of navigating that canoe on the river. This is not, never has been, nor ever will be an easy task and we need to support each other in it if we are to carry on those traditions into the future. This is the theme of this conference and we welcome and invite you to paddle with us.”
